Hmm, well that is me for now. I was able to set this up in a jiffy, good idea 

Everyone can now use http://mirror.clug.ca to get to these ISO's

You have to make them yourself... at a console, do:

:~> md5sum iso_name.iso

and after it works away at it, it will spit out the checksum value which you 
can copy to a file and dump into your directory with each iso.

actually if you do:

:~> md5sum iso_name.iso | iso_checsum.txt

it will automatically pipe the value into a text file that we can use to 
verify our downloads, you can do this right on your server and save yourself 
some trouble.
